Tegan Schaefer is my Marvel character I’ve now played in three separate campaigns (tabletop roleplaying games, that is). Like every character I make, I make corresponding soundtracks for them. Also, the fanart I used for the cover is from this artist here: SnobVOT. :)
Track Listing (so far, as I’m still working on this):
1. Sullen Girl - Fiona Apple
But he washed my shore and he took my pearl
And left and empty shell of me
And there’s too much going on
2. Precious Illusions - Alanis Morissette
Once I know who I’m not then I’ll know who I am
But I know I won’t keep on playing the victim
These precious illusions in my head did not let me down
When I was defenseless
And parting with them is like parting with invisible best friends
3. Thought I Was - Rainer Maria
i was starting to think i couldn’t fight
i’ve got to fight!
just not in the way i once thought right.
4. Chocolate - Snow Patrol
Goodness knows I saw it coming
Or at least I’ll claim I did
But in truth I’m lost for words
5. A Silver Lining - We Shot the Moon
We’re lonely people
All lookin’ for somethin’
I’m reminded, I’m reminded.
I bare a cross that pulls down like an anchor
6. Not Myself - John Mayer
Would you want me when I’m not myself?
Wait it out while I am someone else?
7. I Sing I Swim - Seabear
Throw me a dream please
It’s been a dreamless sleep
For such a long time
Tegan is a 25 year old woman, living with a group of new friends she met during an attack on their city, the gritty, rough town of Visage City. She’s a Dream Walker and a psychic, who is terrified of dreams and thus over the years has developed a very bad addiction to sleeping pills, that allow her to sleep without dreaming. She is frightened of the dreamscape because of an incident when she was 12 years old, where her best friend, an invisible monster that she was psychically linked to since she was a toddler, found out that as a child, Tegan was molested over a period of 6 years by her next door neighbor and babysitter, a older boy named Andrew. (thus the song by Fiona Apple, which is HEARTBREAKING by the way)
Her invisible friend was actually a Dream Eater (a monster created by our GM that is genuinely creepy to look at, let me tell you omfg), and he ripped the young man to pieces in front of Tegan. He was saving her in his own way, but this terrified the 12 year old so much that she could not comprehend that fact for a long time. She was so frightened that she ripped the psychic bond between herself and Snuggly Bear (yup, that’s what his name was to her, as in her mind, he was a giant cuddly teddy bear), and she thought he stalked her in the dreamscape she walked every night.
SO! now, as an adult, she has childlike tendencies, having never really dealt with her childhood trauma and instead, medicated it away and now, in order to SAVE the dreamscape of Visage City which is slowly rotting away and whatnot because of her not walking in it and maintaining it, she has to overcome her addiction and fears.
Anyways, this is tl;dr about my own rpg character which I’m sure no one gives a shit about, but I thought I would share this anyway. Enjoy :D
I like what you have so far. Should I be the lamest of lames and do this for Nick too? :D
